THE CARS SHAKE IT UP (EXPANDED EDITION) Limited Coloured Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
2018 sees The Cars be inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, honouring the legendary band’s incredible musical legacy and enormous commercial success. To kick off these celebrations, The Cars are releasing expanded editions of their two most iconic albums – Shake It Up and Heartbeat City on CD, vinyl and digitally.

This release features the original album with audio remastered in 2016, expanded with rare and unreleased bonus tracks. Illustrated booklets accompany the music and contain liner notes written by the renowned rock journalist David Fricke, who details the history of each album with new interviews with David Robinson.

Ric Ocasek, Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes, Benjamin Orr and David Robinson recorded Shake It Up in 1981 at Syncro Sound, the group’s new studio in Boston, with producer Roy Thomas Baker. Working in their own space afforded them the time to perfect the sound of the album, which sold more than two million copies. It features the unforgettable singles Since You’re Gone, Think It Over and Shake It Up. Several unreleased tracks make their debut on Shake It Up: Expanded Edition, including an early version of Since You’re Gone, the demo for Shake It Up and an unreleased song called Midnight Dancer.
